With the holidays around the corner that means lots and lots of gifts for the kiddos!
That’s why Physicians Premier Emergency Room is wanting to let all the parents know that it is extremely important to pay attention to age ranges on toys, not only because accidents can occur, but because children become curious and they are going to test the limits of toys and use them in unconventional ways.
Young kids will tend to put toys in their mouths (choking hazard) or in their ears and their noses. Parents can take precaution by purchasing toys and other items suitable to the child’s age!
Also, a tip to share with the parents… while Christmas is just around the corner now, everyone’s Elf on the Shelf should be arriving soon. At this time of the year, Physicians Premier Emergency Room doctors reportedly see a lot of little elves come down with Reindeer Influenza.
Don’t worry: it cannot be transferred to humans or pets, but precautions must be taken.
If your elf has not moved, he probably has a case of Reindeer Influenza. Doctors’ orders for this type of illness are: no moving locations, dancing, eating candy canes, drinking syrup and absolutely no mischief! The elf can still take notes and report back to the North Pole. Until then, the elf must not be moved for 2 full days.
Luckily, Physicians Premier Emergency Room will be providing sick notes so your little elves can get some rest then get back to work! You can download a copy, or you can stop by our Round Rock, Central Austin or Bastrop locations to pick one up.
If you notice your little elf not feeling well we are also offering free exams to see if they have come down with Reindeer Influenza. You can bring him into any of our 3 locations and have him checked out!
